Tonight I made my first Christmas meal. Alexx came over. I invited him because a) I knew I didn't have to ask him if there was anything he wouldn't eat, b) I knew he would appreciate it, and c) he was also alone on Christmas, and I just couldn't eat goose alone, knowing Aless was also a lonely goose. :)
So I made some yum.
First, I made my favorite appetizer... Poached Pears with Blue Cheese and Salad, with a Honey Sherry Bacon Vinaigrette. The sex:
Then I made some Roasted Beets, and some Kale with shallots, red pepper flakes, and bacon and goose fat. It was holy wow.
And I just seared the goose with salt and pepper. It kinda tasted like dense steak. I am so proud of my perfect cooking skills. It is pink all the way through with a beautiful dark blush in the center. Happiness.
